If all is OK then you can also sign up and find prices for such specials within the online registration form.
For other requests (e.g. food allergies, accommodation inputs for roommates, travel comments) – such can be mentioned within the online registration form and for esp. the food allergies we will pass this info to the facility (no guarantees can be made). It should be noted that food alternatives for participants with Lactose Intolerance and Gluten Allergies should be better available in 2020 vs 2019 – but for sure only if mentioned beforehand.

ARRIVING FROM ABROAD:
Billund Airport (BLL) and Aarhus Airport (AAR) (see below) are both located approx. 1 hour by car from the venue.
Please also check out the “Arriving from abroad” document for details on the logistics.
IN GENERAL FOR ALL WHICH WILL ARRIVE FROM ABROAD BY PLANE:
If you share your planned flight schedule with us well in advance we will do our best to help you in organizing the logistics to/from the camp. Joint transportation will for sure be arranged for ONE Ryan Air arrival/departure at the AAR airport – besides that it cannot be guaranteed that we will do the organization. A fee of 200,00 kr. (~27€) for the joint transportation will apply (please reserve your space in the ONLINE REGISTRATION). When you sign up let us know your flight details and transportation need (also if it is not the Ryanair at AAR) – and some weeks before the camp we will share a detailed transport plan with all arriving from abroad.
THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN THE AREA:
Please check out the “Things to See and Do” document for inspiration. Mostly for people not doing karate or staying longer though…
Voltage: 220V AC, 60Hz – Central European plug (like the Germans use… and Swedes…and Norwegians… and – well, almost all EU countries use). In other words – remember a converter plug if you come from UK or US.
Currency: Danish Kroner (DKK). All major Credit Cards are accepted in most stores, taxi’s etc – but it seems that almost all requires the CHIP versions (or wireless) – so if you want to be sure – have such.
Language: Danish – or let’s call it Danglish … as we inherit so many words from English the language is somehow floating…
Climate: Out of control. Can be warm and nice in July e.g. 20-25⁰C (2018, 2019, 2020) – or cold/windy and raining e.g. 15⁰C-20⁰C (2017). Prepare for the worst – and it will be good.
Border control: Remember your valid passports – please.
Health: Nearest hospital and emergency room is ~30mins from the camp. We do not plan to use it – but just in case.
CAMP AREA: The camp is held at a boarding school (Danish 1-year type) with a lot of sports facilities at hand. It is very close (20 meters) to a beach where morning training and swimming is an option (but weather dependent). Also nearby is a public indoor swimming facility, a harbor area (with 2 small ferries going to two small islands nearby) and a grocery store. Besides that – there pretty much nothing – which means no “distractions” and you can be mindful on your next “Karate Adventure”.
OSU – and CU in Denmark!!
